The hCG diet originated over 50 years ago with Dr. Simeons. Dr. Simeons eventually wrote the Book: “Pounds and Inches,” in an attempt to remove the safety concerns of the hCG diet. Wikipedia and other conventional sites typically claim there is no weight loss attributable to the use of hCG. However, Dr. Simeons work and case history dating back to the 1950s is clear, if one follows the program, one gets results. Like anything in life, if you sidestep the rules, you won’t achieve the maximum benefit from the results.
Many claim the attacks on Dr. Simeons groundbreaking work is due to the fact that large multi-national pharmaceutical companies won’t profit as much from the Simeons’ diet approach, therefore, it is in their best interest to lobby against it, both in the mainstream media as well as in the halls of the United States Congress and elsewhere. The fact is, there are countless Doctors and medical studies by practitioners that support this work. So much so, it smells of another conspiratorial process to sabotage something of promise as pharmaceutical companies race to patent the next miracle pill.
HCG is natural. In fact, the full name “human chorionic gonadotropin” is a hormone produced by the syncytiotrophoblast.
Real hCG can only be prescribed by a licensed medical doctor. Generally it is used to help increase fertility in women having a difficult time conceiving. Dr. Simeons performed extensive research on the practice of using hCG along with a strict diet. He found, after refinement, that it was virtually 100 percent effective as long as individuals followed the program. The eBook to the right has been updated and formatted by the Anti Aging and Wellness Clinic in Costa Rica. This revised edition includes hot-links from the table of contents, making it easy to read, review and jump to areas of interest. It is now available to all of our patients.
hcg Side effects: There have been some documented hCG side effects, but they are very rare. hCG side effects rarely occur in common practice while under the supervision of an experienced anti-aging medical doctor knowledgeable in hCG diets. Some side effects, which can be found on the internet include, mild bloating & stomach pain, although uncommon. Even less common side effects include: decreased amount of urine, a feeling of indigestion, nausea, pelvic pain, swelling of the feet and hands, weight gain (particularly if cheating on the Dr. Simeons’ defined protocol, acne, enlargement of penis and testes, growth of pubic hair, flushing of skin and some others. Again, hCG is produced by the body and is natural. Side effects, although important to mention, are very rare, and if they are encountered, are almost always insignificant and never impact treatment in a dedicated individual.
hCG Weight Loss: Those that undergo treatment for hCG weight loss, and expect to lose a 1-1.5 lbs per day. Depending on circumstances, this may be more or less in one day. To track hCG weight loss, it strongly recommended one purchase a scale and take their weight upon waking in the morning for consistency. hCG weight loss is rapid, with people capable of losing 30-50 pounds in just over a month. As Dr. Simeons discusses in his eBook on hCG weight loss, one chooses how long to remain on the diet depending on their hCG weight loss goals. Since the hCG weight loss diet focusses on the stubborn fat, it is believed that it is one of the few diets that is long lasting and future weight gain is unlikely once individuals are properly trained in how to eat and maintain a healthy diet and balance of food intake.
What is hCG: Many individuals interested in the diet typically want to know what is hCG? Well, it is Human chorionic gonadotropin. When asked, what is hCG, many medical professional respond that it is referred to as the pregnancy hormone. So, what is hCG? Well, it is to tell the body’s corpus luteum to maintain production of progesterone. In effect, the increase in hCG, furthers the production of progesterone and the integrity of the uterine lining during pregnancy.
hCG Diet Reviews: hCG diet reviews are typically mixed. Those on the side of big government and multi national pharmaceutical companies tend to demonize the diet. On the other hands, there are tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of testimonials and research documents of hCG diet reviews supporting the effectiveness of the diet in the hCG diet reviews by those successfully finishing their treatment. Generally speaking, my anecdotal evidence supports the following: 1) hCG diet reviews that are bad, are usually by doctors or government agencies that have never tried or attempted to study the diet. They just speak on news reports or other general evidence to promote what they wish to promote. There are literally thousands of internet hCG diet reviews available. The most impressive hCG diet reviews are on YouTube, whereby dieters document their progress, record it and publish it for the world to see – without the interference of governments, the media and others that wish to spike the knowledge of this fascinating diet.
